Zero in on what matters…



Distractions are everywhere in modern life. From the constant bombardment of notifications to the lure of the internet and social media. It can be overwhelming, and it can be difficult to stay focused on the task at hand.

If you let them, distractions will overcome your ability to focus, and you’ll wind up accomplishing very little. Trust me, I understand exactly how you feel!

I have had two people on calls this week tell me that they are not getting to the most important parts of their day, because of distractions. I am sure we can all agree that if you are not getting to the revenue-generating parts of your to-do list, your business will have a hard time with growth.

Fortunately, there are ways to cut through the distractions and create productive systems for yourself.

Distraction-free surroundings –

Ask yourself what is distracting me. If it’s your phone, put it somewhere else. If too much commotion steals your attention, find a different work environment. And if your distractions are notifications-based, put your devices on do not disturb for a few hours a day. 

The main point is to put yourself in control. Take control by decluttering your surroundings.

Work in blocks –

Another great way to cut out distractions in everyday life is the block principle.

Take one hour and dedicate that hour to one specific activity. Your blocks should naturally be adjustable. If you’re quicker or slower than anticipated, change the time limit to suit your needs.

The major challenge resides in sticking with one task during your block.

Avoid random entertainment –

Don’t pursue random entertainment in the middle of other activities.

Those social media messages might only take five minutes to look at, but they’ll take your mind off work. The problem with random entertainment is that small sessions quickly add up. Before you know it, you’ve wasted an entire hour on YouTube or TikTok. 

Start each day with a clear plan

When you plan for the day the night before, there’s no guesswork as to what you’ll be doing when you sit down to work in the morning. 

It is important to remember that distractions will always exist. The key is to create strategies to manage them. Part of that is putting sustainable systems on place to free up some of your time so you can get to those revenue-generating tasks.

TIP OF THE WEEK: Lead Magnets

The immediate goal of a lead magnet is to get email subscribers. There are only so many people who will like your content SO much that they’ll just subscribe to your list to receive emails from you.

A lot of people will simply read a bit and then leave, and a lead magnet is designed to incentivize some portion of those people to give you their contact information for later follow-up.

It’s not enough to produce another brochure on a given subject and expect leads to pour in. An effective lead magnet should meet the following requirements:

✅ It resolves your prospects’ problems.

✅ It’s in line with a specific stage of the buyer’s journey.

✅ It’s aligned with your business goals.

✅ It helps to move leads down the sales funnel.

Creating a great lead magnet that performs well for your business is not that hard. Unfortunately, many businesses create their lead magnets as an afterthought, failing to invest the time and energy required to make something special. Take the time and make it something that your potential customers will want.

Finally, don’t fall into the trap and forget about those that opt-in. Have a system in place to follow up with them and make sure they know all you have to offer.

Lead magnets can be a valuable tool for your business if used to their full potential.
